Dr. David W. Hills

Share This Obituary

Synchronicity works in strange ways. For some reason, I was just thinking about Dr. Hills a few days ago. My Dad was also a doctor and a friend. I was remember a story my Dad told me about how a doctor they worked with made a bigoted remark against Jews. Dr. Hills "corrected" him. I don't know if anyone ever realized it, but it obviously meant a lot to my Dad (who was Jewish), because he still talked about it

Dr Hills was the first person to lay eyes on me. He delivered me 47 years ago. My mother loved him as our family doctor. He had such a way with his patients. Always very kind and caring. I have had the pleasure of taking care of his dental needs the last several years. I always looked forward to his appointments so I could return the kindness he gave to me for so many years. I have a huge soft place in my heart for him. He will be dearly missed.

Dear DAvid and family! So saddened to learn of your loss. Surely the strengths and gifts I have observed in you, David, are due to the heritage you have had from your parents, and, in particularly, from your Dad. God wrap you in His love as God by Jesus' hand comforts you and leads you into the future God is creating for you. In fond love...Ed Ross

What am amazing life of service. I will always remember the Sunday morning when we found out that our daughter could not go to church camp because she had not had a "camp physical." Dr. Hills took off his choir robe, took us into one of the offices, gave Stacey a check up, signed her form, and she was on her way.

As time rolled on, we were blessed to be god parents to his granddaughter, and we shared deep

Dr. Hills became a Volunteer for Hospice at Home in 1996, and I, as Volunteer Coordinator, got to know this special person. He was a true gentleman, with a wonderfully kind heart. His smile will never leave my memory, when he walked into a room he brought the Sun with him. I will miss him, I extend my wishes to his family for peace in their hearts.

Dr. Hills inherited me as a patient, when I was in my mid-teens upon opening the medical practice with Dr. Hayes. He served me and my family while in that practice. I have never met another person for whom I had greater respect. My wife and I are saddened to learn of his passing. We know he will be in a better place. He will remain a bright memory in our hearts and minds all the remaining days of our lives. May God bless and keep you.
